Zach is a second-year agriculture major at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. For about five years he has helped out around the VCT office doing a variety of work such packaging coffee samples, roasting, and marketing. This summer Zach is working fulltime at the office as an intern, continuing to expand his knowledge about the coffee industry. In addition to working for VCT he volunteers at the local food bank and summer camps in order to give back to the community.
Zach was born and raised in California and is an avid outdoorsman. In his free time he enjoys hiking, camping, and snowboarding. When he’s not outside he can be found reading a good book or playing with his dog.
Zach’s favorite coffee is Costa Rica El Tigre and his favorite quote is “It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.” By Theodore Roosevelt
